Jul 11, 2012 >> Get the Look! Fiona McEntee of Blowtique helps us channel our inner Brigitte Bardot

We’ve all spent time in mirror trying to achieve a new look. Most new hairstyle attempts fall flat in an hour and we wonder why we try so hard. Fiona McEntee, the pro behind River North’s newest blow-out salon Blowtique, makes it easy to channel your silver screen starlet.

Fiona lets us in on one of her favorite ‘do’s. “Personally, I love the old Hollywood glamour of Ms. Marilyn Monroe. The big, sultry curls really are a timeless classic and they don’t just look good on blondes! Every girl can channel their inner goddess by using the right product and getting a fab blow-out.” Whether you’re off to an event that requires looking your best or are simply in need of a pick-me-up, a good head of hair can go a long way—and Blowtique has a variety of services to suit your tastes.

For the skilled women that think they can achieve these styles on their own, Fiona provides a few tips on how to achieve the look of G&F’s favorite Old Hollywood vixen: Brigitte Bardot.

“This seductive style is heavily focused on huge volume at the root and plenty of teasing. Oribe’s Maximista can give you that bit of oomph during the blow-out – it really helps you to add body. And don’t forget the eyeliner.”

G&F’s suggestion for the perfectly matte Bardot-esque eye? Lancôme Définicils Mascara and VS Makeup Eyeliner in Black Velvet.
